|Serving one another in the Eucharist. This is|
practice for serving one another in the world.
Picture from our recent Eucharist on the lawn.
And that is the power of servanthood; the power to interrupt the tyranny of war; the power to interrupt the tyranny of the greatest.
That power begins when we in our own hearts can accept a simple truth. If you can remember one thing from the sermon, maybe this will be it. It is not all about me. It is not all about me, and when we can begin to believe that in our hearts, when we can begin to believe that the world does not revolve around our ambitions and goals -- even though those goals may be noble and mighty, goals as noble as holding together a country, holding together a family, holding together our very selves -- when we can begin to see that it is not all about me, then we are going to be just that much closer to the something that Jesus offers us; to the ability to connect with one another and with God. When it is not all about me, then we are set free, we are emancipated to see and to serve one another, to be free to make someone else’s day before waiting for them to make ours."
